How associate volunteers are making a difference
Nemours Cares weeks offer associate volunteers a variety of activities and opportunities to support families throughout the communities we serve. During spring and fall 2021, Nemours Children’s associates facilitated two separate Nemours Cares weeks.
Associate volunteers provided 14,418 hours of community service during 2021.
North & Central Florida
Our associates from north to central Florida donated and sorted food for local food banks and assembled snack packs and weekend meals for school-aged children.
In the Delaware Valley, associates made donations of clothes and essential items to Nemours Cares Closets, facilitated a kid-friendly health fair at a local community center, and hosted the third consecutive Community Baby Shower offering support and education for expectant moms in need.
